Top 10 R&B Artists of the '80s

By January 21, 2010

Follow me on:

Top 10 R&B Artists of the '80sI didn't realize this until recently, but one of my fellow about.com music writers, '80s Music critic Steve Peake has compiled a list of his top 10 R&B artists of the 1980s. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of much '80s music of any genre, whether it be R&B, Pop, Rock, whatever. I'm more of a '90s music fan. But I was so impressed by Steve's knowledge of such artists as Evelyn "Champagne" King, Freddie Jackson, Patti Labelle and the late, great Rick James, among others, that I felt compelled to share his list with you. So if you're you're an '80s R&B kind of guy or girl, I definitely encourage you to check out Steve's picks for the top 10 R&B Artists of the 1980s.

Thank goodness for those 80′s & 90′s R&B/Funk artists, because, I didn’t care much for any other genres during those two decades. The 70′s still rule, in my book.

The guy who wrote that article didn’t even mention Luther Vandross, what’s up with that??? Everyone who listened to R&B at that time, knew that Luther was def the man!
